• Former WWE Wrestler Says WWE Told Her To Lose More Weight To Become “Marketable”

Former WWE wrestler Sage Beckett, who worked for WWE in the Mae Young Classic tournament, recently took to Twitter to shed light on WWE’s practices against heavy female wrestlers.

After WWE’s policy regarding talent engaging in third party activities was revealed, Maria Kanellis posted the following on Twitter in response to Andrew Yang’s message to Vince McMahon.

“So, much in wrestling is in the shadows. Fear and abuse of power is their main control mechanism. If WWE fires a woman 2 months postpartum, who wouldn’t they fire?”

Kanellis’ tweet was quoted by Beckett, who shared the story about WWE telling her to do weekly weigh-ins because they wanted her to lose more weight.

“Or hire you during the “Evolution”, AFTER you’ve already lost 130#s over the last 2yrs, then do weekly weigh ins w/ you b/c you need to lose MORE weight, to be marketable, & release you ON International Women’s Day 🤷🏻‍♀️😒 @AndrewYang”
